Abstract: Over the years, wireless mobile connectivity has encompassed billions of people all over the world giving more connectivity and freedom to interact. Dramatically increasing data traffic has been a significant product of this exponential rise in the subscriber base, leading to a drastic demand-supply shortage. Current generation cellular networks such 5G mobile networks and D2D cooperative communication have been poised as solutions for the global bandwidth and supply shortage, anticipating more power efficiency, transmission capacity, reduced latency and a host of other improved efficiency parameters. However, as the mobile devices in a particular area grow, short-range data and multimedia transfer using fewer resources need to be exploited to give better transferability.The paper deals with improving the delivery performance parameters by designing a multi-hop relay based device-to-device communication paradigm where both proximity and social link parameters have been utilized to increase throughput.
